The Florida Department of Health in Martin County partnered with the National Minority Health Organization to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
People can stop by Stuart City Hall anytime between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Booster shots will also be available for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.
“It is nice to have that available to those that need that extra dose, that third those that they can receive 28 days after their second dose. And it will just give them that little extra boost that they need to help hopefully prevent hospitalization or infection,” said Nicholas Clifton, the environmental health manager for the Florida Department of Health in Martin County.
According to health officials, 64% of Martin County residents 12 years and older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
